Climate change has and will continue to significantly impact rural communities around the world. In particular, as weather patterns become increasingly unpredictable, farmers struggle to achieve regular crop yields. In order to address the effects of climate change on agriculture around the world, IIRR is supporting research into and implementation of Climate Smart Villages (CSVs).
Our CSV network in Asia has demonstrated great success, and we are proud to present some of the latest learning from our work at our upcoming learning conference showcasing our project Climate Smart Villages as platforms for resilience building, women’s empowerment, equity, and sustainable food systems.
Funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), the research commenced in June 2020 and concludes in November 2022 across the Philippines, Myanmar, and Cambodia. The study provides important learning and evidence on the valuable contribution CSVs make in enriching local food systems, enhancing livelihoods, increasing household resilience, and helping advance gender equity and inclusion.
This one-day multi-stakeholder learning conference is a hybrid event and will be live streamed via Zoom on October 3, 2022 from 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM (GMT +8).
